ART's offer an array of treatment options and alternative paths to parenthood. Along with hope, they also bring emotional, physical and financial challenges, and in some cases (donor sperm/egg/embryo, surrogacy) ethical dilemmas. Written by highly respected infertility counsellors, this is a thorough but sensitive guide to the complex decisions of whether, where, and how long to pursue treatment, as well as guidance about when, how and why to talk with children about their origins.
